One long bad Christian advert
13 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

This movie is just an one long attempt/advertisement by christians to publicize a childishly poor argument for the problem of evil. In the end it totally fails to address that, if a god existed, he/she would have to be completely evil to allow all the horrible things that happen in this world to occur if omnipotent and omnipresent. A good/omnipotent/omnipresent god is a logical contradiction as pointed out in 310 BCE by Epicurus.
